“So welcoming and friendly!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We went to Chuti for dinner twice and got takeaway lunch once. The family that owns the restaurant is extremely friendly and welcoming. They go out of you way to make you feel comfortable and are happy. The food is fresh and really tasty. Lots of yummy herbs were used in the Kottu Roti and friend rice we tried and it made the meal stand out from many we have had so far in Sri Lanka. It's especially great if you're on a budget - seriously good value for money.

“The best roti in Sri Lanka”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

The Chuti restaurant is a small restaurant near the Lion Rock directly on the main street in Sigiriya. The whole family runs the restaurant and they make you feel like at home!

We were there 3 times and tried nearly all the rotis and we loved them. Especially the Kotthu roti is excellent. But you have to try the coconut honey roti, the banana roti, the vegetable roti and the cheese roti as well!!!! Its so authentic and lovely there. Unfortunately we never found any roti restaurant like this later on our travels.

“Really average stuff, poor service , better options around”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Having read so many exceptional reviews we went searching for the place but were disappointed. There was this one lady running the show, cooking, serving, taking orders, though there were only 2-3 tables , it took for ever, we had to go find her and place our order, go and check now and again on the progress and finally when it came , the food was really average.

Mosquitoes made a meal of us during the wait, there are many options around and i guess would have been better sitting next door.

“Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Had a wonderful Kothi Roti there. It certainly sated the hunger after my strenuous climb to the top of the rock. Cooked infront of me. Lovely lady serving and a relaxing cool down, which was also needed.
